COVID-19 and socioeconomic context in Bangladesh: Discussion from a gendered point of view

Sarker, Anupom


The COVID-19 affected communities and the economy beyond public health. The epidemic is expected to increase global poverty and inequality, making it crucial to study its effects. Several international organisations determined that a "new recession" was underway due to the global pandemic's destructive effects on the financial, social, and personal spheres. Despite their best efforts, many undeveloped nations are fighting the pandemic's aftereffects. Bangladesh is like other nations. Global economic and social changes will lead to new difficulties in the near future. Thus, studying COVID's effects from a variety of perspectives, including gender, is crucial and timely. This paper explores the aftermath of the epidemic, focusing on the plight of women workers. In doing so, it sheds light on a particularly marginalised group, including maids and housekeepers, who have been denied benefits and recognition for their job
